'Pamper Yourself' Day 4: Enjoy a hobby

Today's challenge is to enjoy a hobby.

Once our little ones are born, we often find ourselves without the time to enjoy the things we once did. Which isn't all bad, however sometimes we need to do something just for ourselves and hobbies are a good way to do that.

Some common hobbies are-

Reading
Crafts-sewing, crocheting, scrapbooking
Exercising
Sports
Writing

What hobbies do you enjoy doing? How often do you find yourself with time to do them? If you don't have a hobby, have you thought about having one? What would you like to do?

If you missed yesterday's activity, you can find it hereIf you haven't signed up for the 'Pamper Yourself' Challenge yet, you can do so here.

I love reading. Theres nothing more relaxing then curling up in a chair and disappear in a good book.
Rarely do I actually have time to do this. And when I do have time i'd rather catch up on sleep or housework

Today I plan on soaking up two hobbies! I will be watching the 49ers game after church today as well as cuddling in bed at nap time and reading the last book in a 4book series I was working on while pregnant :)

I love scrapbooking. I haven't done it in years though. It's hard to find the time with three kids and never ending household cleaning.

I try to knit over nap time, and at least once a week over lunch at work, it helps my stress level soooooo much

I don't have a hobby right now. I do work out a few times a week at a gym, but would love to find time to read or play piano or get a new hobby.

I like crafting and photography. I craft at nigh after my kids go to bed. My kids make for great pictures. I take pictures during the day and edit them at night

My main hobby is reading. I love to read and try to fit it in. Now that she's older I can get more in. Usually I wait until after she goes to bed to read a little but if its the weekend I will have her play on the floor with DH and read
